Praise for Ann Beattie and Distortions

“Beattie has a facility . . . that is breathtaking, a fluidity that delights. . . . [She is] one of the most influential short-fiction writers of her generation.” —Newsday

“Magnificent, a pleasure, a significant literary debut.” —The New York Times

“Like a boxed set of Miles Davis CDs . . . both superb in itself and an essential piece of history. . . . [Beattie is] one of our era’s most vital masters of the short form.” —The Washington Post Book World

“Ann Beattie is both painful and funny. She is a writer for all audiences, combining a remarkable array of skills with material of wide popular appeal. Her characters inhabit our contemporary world and brood like us about their loves, families, and lives. They compose a wide-screen panorama of life in these United States.” —The New York Times Book Review
